Extend-it: [Dm, 118 BPM] Trouble Maker – Now There is No Tomorrow (eHash ReDrum)

trouble-maker-now-coverA decent bootleg of this single is still missing from the remixer community, so it was necessary to churn this one out. If you’ve been spinning for adolescents, by now you’ve noticed the phenomenon: Kpoppers love to dance to this song.

[Transition Track 126 – 97 BPM, Am] Diplo – Bubble Butt feat. GD & TOP

GD&TOP

You’re somewhere around 130 BPM and you need to transition to a track at 100. Such a tempo jump isn’t easy to pull off live right away, but that’s what transition tracks are for.Pulling from a DJ TechTools tutorial, P Lo threw together this quick transition to get from the top 40/house ranges into something for hip hop. While there were plenty of these transition tracks for top 40, we thought to throw this quickie together for the kpop DJ.

Remix Recap: PSY – OPPAN GANGAM STYLE

In case you were out of the loop, Gangnam Style has become something of a viral international phenomenon. Transcending borders, this kpop hit has begun to see air-play on California mainstream radiostations. The hit has become so popular that it has even surpassed SNSD’s “Gee,” the national anthem for kpop, in YouTube views. What does this say about the future kpop?

Whether or not this is a passing trend, we here at Spin Kpop want to keep you DJ’s well-equipped to weather the Gangnam storm.

[128 BPM Key of Gmaj] BIG BANG (빅뱅) – Blue (Epitone Remix vs eHash ReWork)

Songs in major keys are rare. A few months ago Epitone released his orchestral remix of Big Bang’s “Blue.” Because it’s so rare to have a song in a major key we wanted to make sure DJ’s could add this number to their sets. A sentimental single with strings in a major key makes this remix a nice note to close a set on, but we provide both an intro and outro in case you’d like to keep the gig going. The song carries a stronger kick throughout should the dancers need a beat to move to.

Extend-it: [134 BPM Key of Cm] IU – U & I (eHash ReWork)

Though it’s not a song for party-rockers, this 2011 hit still receives requests at mobile gigs and radio play. IU’s U&I could very well be a self-contained movie soundtrack with its mood changes and orchestral strings. To make the moving melody mixable, we’ve added a 32 beat intro before the starting verse. The stronger kick and snare picks up from the start of the edit and carries throughout.

Upcoming: Moar Oppan Gangam Style Content

Full disclosure: most of our recent traffic has for Gangnam Style DJ edits. It seems nearly every kpop outlet is riding on the coattails of Gangnam style wave, and we’re not afraid to admit doing the same.

We’re happy to announce that we’re finalizing a package of Gangnam Style edits and remixes for download in the next couple days to bring extended variety and life to this viral meme. While it may be that PSY’s single is approaching the end of its 15 minutes of fame, we thought we’d provide the resources needed to play the Gangnam Style song in different ways.

Stay tuned. The YouTube teaser featured above is Epitone and Blue Satellite’s joint remix of the song.

Extend-it: [125 BPM Key of Em] Sistar – Alone ( 나 혼자) (Areia Remix – eHash Edit)

Yeah…

We couldn’t wait for an official DJ-edit from Areia. The tricky thing about Areia’s remix is its delicate intro– which gently immerses the listener into the mix with soft synths and whispered words from Hyorin.

The eHash edit allows us DJs to gradually introduce the  song with short kicks, snaps and a light high hat percussion. It’s a clean DJ intro edit if we don’t say so ourselves. Taps on the high hat continues over the rest of the mix.

Download it here: Alone ( 나 혼자) (Areia Remix – eHash Edit) 

Extend-it: [130 BPM Key of Dm] 4Minute – Volume Up (Epitone Remix)

It is a rare opportunity to play a club-banger with a steamy alto sax. 4minute’s volume up was remixed by the dirty dutch remixer, Epitone, a couple months back but we hadn’t had the time to touch it until now. We love his version of the track but it is unfortunately without an dj-intro to make mixing easy.

So we created our own 32 beat edit of the track for Dj’s to drop in clubs. Because we grabbed audio from the outro, there’s a bit of phasing occurring on in this intro edit, but it’s the best we could do without a clean instrumental from Epitone. Epitone, ya listenin’? We like dj-friendly versions of your club edits, so please make them club-friendly for DJs.

Like the original, the PLo ghetto-unmastered edit of the track is up for download at 130 BPM in the key of Dm.

EXTEND-IT: [132 BPM, KEY OF BM] PSY – GANGNAM STYLE (PLo Hook First Intro)

Every couple of years a hilarious internet meme will come along with an amazing soundtrack that adds to its virality. Say what you will about the ridiculousness of PSY’s video, but you know what: PSY gives 0 fucks. His song creates explosions in his wake and his dance lassos-in the likes of Hyuna. We’ll all laugh at this track, but deep down, we secretly know this song is made of pure awesome. This is LMFAO’s Sexy and I know it kpop style.  Maybe the DJ will play the song at the club and we’ll dance pretending that we’re just drunk.

Its our job as DJs to let these kids to dance to what may be 2012’s best. Continue reading

Extend-it: [115 BPM Key of F#m] SNSD – The Boys (eHash Edits)

First off, if you’re not attending the YouTube Kpop concert in Mountain View, California – WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU!? The titans of SM and JYP are to provide a free concert on Monday for those who could snag a ticket. A Spin Kpop staffer was actually asked to DJ at the event, but due to a busy morning, Spin Kpop lost the chance to perform. Better luck next time, yeah? But for the DJ who caught the gig, and likely reading this blog (we’re hella envious), we’ll still provide you with the edits to pimp the Kpop movement out here in the west.

In this extend-it edition, we’re providing you with a double-shot of the Korean and English versions of SNSD’s The Boys. 32 beats before the intro verse, it’s ready for your epic drops. The outro is also there for those who need it. The SNSD girls are ready for your sets, will you give it American air-play?
